WINNINGS WAITING

Winner of $1.5 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot Has Yet to Claim Prize

The winner of the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot has not yet come forward to claim their prize, South Carolina news station WLTX reports. The winning ticket was reportedly sold at a Simpsonville convenience store, but no one has claimed the jackpot since the October 23 drawing. The winning numbers drawn were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. The lucky individual reportedly has 180 days, or until April 21, to claim their winnings. The establishment that sold the winning ticket, KC Mart, received $30,000 for its role in the winnings. Lottery officials also unfurled a banner above the store that reads, “Luck Struck Here!” Owner C.J. Patel told the outlet he plans on splitting the money with his four employees. “Hopefully it will bring us more business,” Patel said.
